Don't be a Scrooge

Secret Santa is about fun and giving. It's also about managing your time over the holidays in order to fulfill a commitment. It's not always easy to participate in Secret Santa, and the consequences for being a scrooge are steep.

However, we all get busy around the holidays, and it's understandable if real life or school work becomes too overwhelming. HOWEVER, if you feel that you will not be able to do this by the deadline, you need to speak up now, before I assign santas. It's fine if you need to back out now. If you back out after December 5th, you will be considered a scrooge.

What are the consequences of being a scrooge? Your name will be announced publicly, your forum avatar and title will be changed to rude things of my choosing, and you will risk being given "high risk" partners next year, increasing your odds for being scrooged. Nice, huh? Most of all, though, you'll have to live with the knowledge that you jerked someone around by not upholding your end of the bargain.
